More from Fender:

One of the most popular amplifiers of all time lives again in the '57 Custom Champ. Renown for its flexibility, ease-of-use and knockout tone, this is the classic sound heard on thousands of recordings. A wide variety of playable tones inhabit this hand-wired performer - from crisp, classic cleans to naturally compressed overdrive that responds remarkably to guitar volume and picking dynamic changes.

The Fender '57 Custom Champ tube amplifier brings you the authentic sound, looks, and vibe of a classic. It pumps five watts of tube-powered tone through an 8" Weber Special Design speaker, which includes an alnico magnet for vintage sound. The handwired circuitry ensures that you can easily manipulate your guitar's volume and tone controls to get a range of dynamic, responsive tones. And the Fender '57 Custom Champ's solid pine cabinet, lacquered tweed covering, and leather strap handle make the '57 Custom Champ look as amazing as it sounds.

Reissue of a legendary combo
The 1950s Fender Champ tube amps have become some of the most coveted vintage amplifiers of all time for how well they record and sound when cranked wide open. They display a warm low end with plenty of top-end clarity that is never shrill - just plenty of fat, thick overdrive that sounds like the best part of yesteryear. Because vintage Champs and this Fender '57 Custom Champ are five watts, they can be turned up for all the juicy sag and drive you could want at reasonable volumes. There's a very good reason this circuit is so sought-after on vintage markets.

Nails the authentic Fender tweed tone
The Fender '57 Custom Champ sounds great at low volumes for clear, clean tones. But it's when you turn the volume knob up past noon that you'll begin to coax iconic sustain from this little monster. It's a tone unlike any other amplifier out there. And because the whole amp is handwired with incredible attention to detail, the '57 Custom Champ responds to your playing, your guitars' pickup positions, and control manipulations effortlessly. You'll attain a wide range of tonal shades out of this simple-to-use amp.

Looks great onstage, in the studio, or at home
A good portion of what makes the original and this '57 Custom Champ so identifiable are the amps' very 1950s looks. The '57 Custom Champ tube combo amplifier is covered in the expertly applied lacquered tweed covering. Its golden hues stand out and look fantastic whether onstage, in the studio, or sitting comfortably in your living room. The period-correct oxblood grille cloth and genuine leather handle complete the aesthetic package. We know these amps sound fantastic, but every player at Sweetwater wants one to make our home studios look that much better.
